Beautiful hike to the top. It's a bit steep at points but the 360 view from the top on a clear day is spectacular. Wouldn't recommend doing it on a very windy day.
This place was fantastic. We were recommended to do this hike by a couple we ran into earlier in our trip. It took us an hour and a half to do, but we are the stop and take picture type. We could see Vik from the top, and the rock formations off the coast of Vik also. While the grave was neat, the old turf farmstead cool, the best part was the view and remoteness. My favorite hike I think. We got to see a bunch of sheep up close. Glad their poo doesn't smell as bad as my dogs since i stepped in some. Also it is extremely windy. We did the counter clockwise way, and that worked pretty well. You will really enjoy this hike, guaranteed!
